Sumatra Ketambe is cultivated in the lush rainforest-clad highlands of the Aceh province on the northern tip of the Indonesian island of Sumatra. This exotic locale is the last place on earth where elephants, rhinos, tigers, clouded leopards and orangutans are found in one area. It also enjoys climate conditions and soil quality that are ideally suited to coffee cultivation.

The most recent harvest from the region is truly outstanding. This crop of exceptionally large beans offers the signature full body of a good Sumatra, along with an intense aroma of caramel and chocolate with hints of plum. We are very proud to offer this unique coffee as a part of our coffee menu.

These beans are handpicked when coffee cherries have ripened to a rich, deep red color. Coffee cherries produced in most regions are washed to remove fruity mucilage before drying. However, Sumatra Ketambe is processed differently, whole, unpeeled coffee cherries are raked out on a large patio to dry in the sun. The extended contact between beans and the outer cherry helps to develop their prized flavor and aroma.

We roast Sumatra Ketambe to a dark color to further enhance the coffee's natural body and smokiness.

“Reunion opened its first Toronto cafe on Roncy in 2015. But they’ve quietly been brewing and building relationships with farmers since 1995, and it shows in the deep lineup of single-origin beans in stock on a regular basis. They’ve been buying these Las Hermosas beans for 15 years from a farm co-operative in southern Colombia. It’s roasted to medium and meant to exemplify the platonic ideal of what a cup of Colombian coffee should taste like: not too acidic and a little sweet, with some hints of milk chocolate.”

“There are an abundance of Canadian coffee roasters making waves in the specialty coffee world, and most ship countrywide (some with subscriptions, so you'll never run out). Across Canada, notable coffee roasters like Reunion, along with many others now, make delicious, specialty coffee accessible daily for their in-store customers and the at-home brewer.”
